Saturday Video

Your everlasting summer
You can see it fading fast
So you grab a piece of something
That you think is gonna last

You wouldn't know a diamond
If you held it in your hand
The things you think are precious
I can't understand

Are you reelin' in the years?
Stowin' away the time?

Are you gatherin' up the tears?
Have you had enough of mine?

You been tellin' me you're a genius
Since you were seventeen
In all the time I've known you
I still don't know what you mean

The weekend at the college
Didn't turn out like you planned
The things that pass for knowledge
I can't understand

I spend a lot of money
And I spent a lot of time
The trip we made in Hollywood
Is etched upon my mind

After all the things we've done and seen
You find another man
The things you think are useless
I can't understand
